Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The in-game menubar of FlightGear is located at the top of the screen.


The menubar is available in various styles. Currently there are two styles (both are shown below) packaged with FlightGear. The blue/black one is standard, but most developers use the grey/white one. You could switch between styles by pressing Shift + F10.

Creating your own

It's very easy to make your own designs. Just copy one of the files that you find in data/gui/styles and change it to your needs. Then, edit the follwing code in the data/preferences.xml file to fit your style. You could simply add a line like <style n="0" include="gui/styles/anthrax.xml"/>. The current-style tag specifies the style that should be used when FlightGear loads.

  <current-style type="int" userarchive="y">1</current-style>
  <style n="1" include="gui/styles/classic.xml"/>
  <style n="0" include="gui/styles/anthrax.xml"/>
  <devel-widgets type="bool" userarchive="y">false</devel-widgets>
